What’s going on everyone! Hope all of you are doing well despite these wild times we are living in.
Very crazy how the country and the world looks currently, but we can still look forward to better things that are ahead and find hope.
I know its been a while since I wrote but I think timing is everything. For those of you that don’t know, my fiancé and I run a podcast/YouTube channel ((www.YoYoThePodcast.com & “Gray Speaks” on Youtube) where we talk about a lot of different life topics but we always like to add the Bible into it to really help us make sense of the many trials and tribulations that we all battle with on a daily basis. One episode is called “Character Vs. Reputation” where we go in depth of what those 2 words mean and the importance of making sure your character, or who you truly are, proceeds your reputation.
i thought about it and came to the conclusion that this is a great topic to talk about in regards to watches as well.
Today, the most popular watch is the “smart watch.” I guess there are many reasons for that. Maybe convenience because you can do many things on it. Basically everything you can do on a smart phone, you can now do on your wrist. In my personal and most humble opinion, smart watches take away from the beauty of a true watch.
There’s no character in a smart watch.
They aren’t very unique when it comes to design, and there is no true story behind a smart watch and the inspiration behind its functionality is almost non-existent, other than some lights and sounds it makes.
Being a designer, uniqueness and inspiration are absolutely important. I like for my watches to tell a story and to have the wearer feel rather special and unique when wearing it and to know that the designer really did have them in mind when making it. That once they pass this heirloom down to the next generation, they will have a good time explaining what it really means to them and why they decided to purchase it.
A smart watch on the other hand, you won’t be able to pass it along to another generation because electronics become obsolete. Reputation is obsolete if it doesn’t speak to the upstanding character of an individual.
An automatic timepiece is never obsolete, especially a Verdure automatic. There is true character in the brand, and behind every watch. The character of the Verdure brand proceeds our reputation. We don’t care to keep up with other brands because we know God has chosen us to stand out from amongst the crowd. With us, it is more about providing a quality product for a great price. It is not just about a name, but the story behind the ‘Why’ of the brand.
So invest in a watch that describes who you are. A watch that is unique and makes you feel as such. God made you beautiful and different from everyone else on the face of the earth for a reason and that is what Verdure is here to express.
Your reputation means nothing if you are not being true to who God made you to be.
So I hope you guys enjoyed this read as it is always a pleasure to drop off a few of my thoughts. God bless and be safe!
"When designing I try to keep in mind that I wouldn't want anyone buying something that I would not wear myself. So with each design I put forth my best effort to give someone a watch that is aesthetically pleasing that can be worn with just about anything."
